and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so
of the senate foreign relations committee, john kerry, wants more answers, co-signing a bipartisan letter asking for more details. but he told nbc's andrea mitchell that it should not be a partisan issue. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> reporter: republicans also question how good the investigation can be when security concerns have stopped an fbi team from getting to the crime scene, having to work instead from libya's capitol city of tripoli, 400 miles away. a official said that while that is limited, it is more important to question people in libya thought to know about the attack. and he says the process is yielding more valuable information. one other note, peter king, chairman of the house committee, said that ambassador susan rice should resign because of her statement. >>> all right, we want to turn to andrea mitchell, chief foreign correspondent, and andrea how rare is
in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put
? inquiring politicians want to know and not just republican ones. democrat john kerry wants to get to the bottom of what u.s. authorities knew about escalating terror threats in libya. supposedly there were 20 cables warning the state department how to proceed at the embassy including pole from the late ambassador chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and the state department. >>neil: what do you think might have been the reason for not calling it a terro
for the "daily beast "the adviser and consultant of course for john kerry. and larry sabato who runs the university of virginia center for pol techs. larry, let me start with you. you're kind of the man in the middle here. where do you think the race stands right now? >> bob, i think the president is ahead. at my crystal ball station we have him at 290 electoral votes but some of those states are just barely leaning to him, like my native virginia. obama is ahead two or three points. the polls have him up higher than that, but i don't think he's really there. >> schieffer: ar let me just go to our map of the battled ground states here, nevada, new hampshire, north carolina, ohio, virginia, florida, iowa, wisconsin and colorado. i think most of the polls suggest now that the president is at least slightly ahead in all of these states, except possibly north carolina. cbs news is now calling ohio in fact leaning, leaning to the president not a toss-up state. does that sound about right to you? >> that sounds about right. i actually think north carolina is probably leaning to romney, des
is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense, and as you mentioned, he leaves tomorrow, has one event on the ground when he leaves for nevada. then he goes to ground, training at altitude, because the debate is in the mile-high city of denver. but we don't expect to see much of him. he's going to be doing a lot of practicing for that debate wednesday night. >> this is president obama's first debate since 2008. governor romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is exp
the debates, but george w. bush exceeded his expectations and did fine. four years later, john kerry at least in some of the eyes probably was a better debater but didn't necessarily matter. chuck is right, it is difficult to reset it. but there are a lot of voters who are completely fine with a new president, i think, even some people who voted for president obama. i was talking to a voter a week ago in wisconsin and said he voted for obama four years ago and not sure at all. he is open to voting for governor romney if he knew what he stood for. that is governor romney's charge here to put some meat on the bones of what he stands for on his policies. and people are open to that. >> jim, imagine yourself as a debate moderator this week and put on your mask and go with it. what kind of questions would you like to see these candidates address that will actually speak to the concerns you hear voters have about the future of this country? >> there is one question and i don't want to tell jim what to do but ask it different ways, and that is how in the world what you are proposing enough to get th
-islamic film. they say it was a coordinated terrorist attack. democratic chairman john kerry defending her today, i'm deeply disturbed by efforts to find the politics instead of finding the facts in this debate. it killed four americans including chris stevens. i'm i'll see you right here at 6:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. >> paul: hillary clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist
ability, call it what y you -- is compounded by the .747% remember john kerry? voted $47 billion, i against i" this plays into the negative of mitt romney as an aloof, detached, uncaring, just empathy forow n in his social bracket.ic >> from m the politico piece --- "where is the moment where romney sings the praises of the waitresstiff, the shift?"a double mike huckabee told jay leno that romney reminds you of the guy you.ired >> romney isis not going to be e your pain. feels not a great politician. one of the reason at this -- it did not come . of nowowhere out of tens of million ads by the obama he handledbout how ith bain capital and all that. other essence was the series thasay he wants to produce taxes on the rich. reduce taxes on the e rich. romney has protested that that true, that he wants to the rich buttes on theitted to reform that share paid in taxes by the rich not change. he says that in intnterviews but never spell that out in way that would d get attention. meme is that t he wants to cut taxes on the rich, but the not, andthahat he would never stood up and w way tha

on upon exit polls, they thought john kerry was going to be president. >> fox news apparently that night, they thought john kerry was going to win until the very end. >> and you have to remember the down ballot races matter a lot. >> congress and senate. >> then republicans are going, they need to redouble their efforts to retake the senate and that's looking dicesy. that's why president obama had active efforts in texas in 2008 because those down ballot races really matter for the future and for your leverage when you come into office. >> thanks to all three and please let us now whether you think the polls are actually reflecting the real numbers right now. >>> next, there are very conflicting stories about what happened that night in libya. it is now being called benghazi gate and police arrive at a gruesome murder scene and find a young television star dead in the driveway. >>> benjamin netanyahu drew a red line, literally, had the big, fat, wasn't a skinny little sharpie. it was a fat, red line. >>> our second story, the prime minister of israel literally drew a red line for iran's
with you a little bit. you go back to 2004. john kerry went into the '04 debates down six or seven points in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk
relations committee chaired by democrat john kerry wrote the state department, they want to know if the u.s. had any intelligence a possible attack and if security forces assigned to our missions were well-equipped and what the forces did to protect personnel when they came under fire. one republican on the committee says the story right now just does not add up. >> the responses have been, have been varying degrees of what's happened. we have not been told clearly what has happened and i think the window has closed. now this is turning into something not short of benghazi-gate. >> reporter: many leaders on capitol hill were briefed by intel and administration officials days after the attack but were told the focus of the briefings was the anti-islam video, not terrorism and some of those leaders are not pleased about that. bill: i bet. peter doocy following that today on a friday. thanks. martha. martha: a majority of people are not happy with the way president obama handled the situation in libya. look at brand new fox news polls we've got in. 43% of likely voters say they disapprove ho
while obama is working with senator john kerry. latest polls covered with that 47% remark hurting romney. in the battleground state of pennsylvania today. >> -- make sure america leads in our homes, in our economy and in our military. i need something from you. that's my commitment to you. i need you to go out and find somebody who voted for barack obama and get him to vote for me. >> he's down but not out. can he turn it around with an october surprise? let's welcome stephanie cutter. it's going reasonably well for you guys. it's been a good couple weeks, really since the conventions. you've got a bit of momentum but i guess you're not taking this too complacently. >> no, absolutely not, piers. you know, debates can be a pivotal moment in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to c
the expectations game. >> oh, big time, they're trying to play that expectations game and got senator john kerry playing the role of mitt romney, and familiar with his record pack in massachusetts and familiar with this kind of podium and stage and the obama campaign is trying to stay woe is the president hasn't debated in four years, since he went toe to toe, a day job and commander-in-chief and only a few practice sessions not enough time like mitt romney has had to practice and then as you mentioned david plouffe who is on some of the sunday talk shows today. trying to lift expectations on the other side by mitt romney, saying he got an awful lot of practice back in that long drawn out republican primary, take a listen. >> listen, he's prepared more than any candidate i think maybe in history. certainly in recent memory. we believe that governor romney has been a good debater in the past, he's very prepared and the clever zingers and lines in hess pocket and we understand that he'll probably have a good night. >> and the obama camp feels good after what chris christie did said it's going to b
taking constructive criticism? is he bristoling? responding to jibes from john kerry playing mitt romney? >> well, the mood is a lot of hard work, you know, he's been able to take a couple of trips, you know, to the hoover dam and he went to visit our field office, but, you know, he's putting good time in to get ready for this debate. as you know we had to cut back other debate prep because of the job of being president, but he's taken the criticism well and i think that you'll see him show up tonight well prepared. >> there is a foreign policy debate exploding around him and this is supposed to be a domestic policy debate. the question now as darrell issa and know jason chav fits right letters to hillary clinton demanding answers to what happened in benghazi, questions about whether people there asked for more security, whether there was an intelligence failure, there's talk of plans for retaliation, if the targeting can be found, what is the response to the republican criticism and criticism from some democrats that this was not handled well? >> well, i'll leave some of the details to
, but i certainly would not underestimate what barack obama brings to it. >> reporter: john kerry's playing romney with the president. in a weekend memo, republicans urged kerry to press the president on libya and syria. romney calls obama's foreign policy dangerous. romney's debate plan, clearly and concisely explain how he can fix the economy. >> i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand, and if they do, i get elected. >> reporter: his running mate, paul ryan, is already preparing for his own debate a week away. >> i really believe in the policies that we're providing, we're pursuing. and at the end of the day, i'm just going to go in there and be me. >> reporter: and if you can't control what actually happens in the debate, you certainly control what happens afterwards. the spin already in the planning. ryan's going to be with romney in virginia. the president is staying in colorado for a rally there. veronica? >> tracie, we appreciate it. thank you. >>> nato forces in afghanistan say three international service members and their translator were kille
with massachusetts senator john kerry his sparring partner they will head to colorado soon enough, though. both of them are in essence cramming for the big test tonight. number twos were duking it out on the trail and that got some unexpected attention yesterday vice vice presidemitt romney cae by the middle class. >> this is deadly earns, deadly earns. how they can justify how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class is buried the last four years. how in the lord's name can they justify? >> vice president biden just today said the middle class over the last four years have been quote buried. we agree. stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> and that exchange right there may be a pretty good preview of what we are going to hear tonight from the presidential candidates this is a debate that will focus entirely on domestic issues. that means a lot of talk about the economy and taxes. back to you guys. >>> thank you, doug. tonight's debate a big talker this morning. we are hearing from the man who helped prepare romney for his primary debate bret
huckabee and michele bachmann's. and michael meehan, former senior advisor for senator john kerry suggesting it is actually a record breaking viewership that watched last night, more than the first debate in 2008. there were huge, huge numbers of people watching last night. today we have seen the obama team come out and first, they tried to say mitt romney was testy. then they tried to say it was just a performance. now they have come out with an ad suggesting that he was rude. and question, ed, whether, a, that is the best we're going to see from the team, and b, does that have an impact on what we saw last night? >> nothing has an impact on the 55 million people who watched it or anybody who picked up a newspaper today other than the fact that the projection is that romney did a very effective job and he won by all determinations, exit polls, any rest of it. he basically came in with a real gameplan. he laid out in a very gentle way, not a harsh way, all the things he thinks is wrong with the president and the president's plans. the president for whatever reason was not able to

for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong and the administration is trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information available at the time. >> molly: a spokesperson for james clapper says assessment was a spontaneous attack but at some point, that assessment changed and the intelligence community determ
of the mistakes owe obama made was having john kerry, the senator of massachusetts play mitt romney. he wants to be secretary of state in a second obama administration if he wants to. i bet he was not tough on obama. when romney began seriously responding to obama's attacks and romney began going on the offensive on obama's record i think the president was stunned and said, hey this isn't what john kerry did in the practice debates. what is going on here. i worked for vice president quail he did a good job on his debate in 92, he we briefed it, he practiced. you going on that stage, it's you and he alone, i give mitt romney a lot of credit for last night. jenna: we'll continue to watch your writing inks in "the weekly standard" and all your appearances on fox. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. jon: president obama is back on the campaign trail today after less than stellar reviews on his performance in last night's debate. a live look now where the president is speaking any minute at an event in denver. chief white house correspondent ed henry is there and joins us live. the president
for the big debates. john kerry, by the way, will be playing the role of mitt romney. he's someone who has a lot of experience debating but also knows mitt romney very well as he comes from massachusetts. now, the big issue, though, is who will both of these candidates be able to sway in the debate? as we know, most americans have made up their minds. we're talking about a small slice of those undecided voters who are watching, waiting to find out exactly who will win. >> okay. let's talk about the republican side with paul steinhauser. word on the street, paul, is that mitt romney has been practicing zingers since august. >> yeah. that's the word on the street. the romney campaign won't go there, carol. all they're going to say is, guess what? he's spending a lot of time getting ready. you're right. i don't have any sound fm mitt romney like dan had from the president. why? he hasn't done an event in a while. mitt romney, carol, he jumps on a plane today, goes out to colorado. he's got a campaign rally there tonight. but after that basically hunkers down. you mentioned john kerry, of cour
. it's spilling over in their districts. we heard senator john kerry speak yesterday. a letter signed, eric. should there be hearings? we have a chorus, bipartisan chorus demanding answers. >> eric: here is how it goes. the timeline. september 11 the attacks happened. september 12 our own u.s. officials know it's terror. they label it terror to release assets to combat terror. on september 13, sorry, on the 12th also, secretary of state hillary clinton comes out and calls it the movie. blame the movie. 13, jay carney did. 14, susan rice does, blames the movie. september 25, barack obama at the podium blames the movie. september 27 our fox reports they knew two weeks ago. what happens today, 28th dn saying well information is evolving and the democrats are you no saying well, i guess we didn't know what the truth was now. we are getting it. here comes the spin. >> kimberly: investigate it after the election. november 7, sounds good. >> andrea: are you going to speak out with the democrats to demand answers or sit here and give us excuses? >> bob: i'm not giving excuses. >> greg: presid
that the administration had at the time. and john kerry, democratic chairman of the foreign relations committee says she's a quote enormously capable person, but republican congressman peter king is it not convinced. he wants to know why five days after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others, ambassador rice stated publicly on several talk shows it was a spontaneous attack that grew out of an anti-muslim video when there was evidence it was a coordinated terror attack. >> ambassador rice should resign and we should investigate how high up this went and if the administration would voluntarily come forward and why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet, they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start. >> sources tell fox news that intelligence officials knew within one day of the attack, that was likely tied to al-qaeda. but according to a spokesperson for james clapper, director of national intelligence, that was not the initial statement. in the immediate aftermath. there was information that led us to assess that th
is holding mock debates near las vegas with a former democratic white house hopeful, john kerry, playing the role of governor romney. both sides seem to be trying to lower expectation for wednesday, even president obama himself yesterday acknowledged to supporters a rally today, that his debate skills could be rusty. >> folks in the media speculate on would will have the best zingers. or who will put the most points on the board. governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. >>shepard: it is likely no coincidence that the president picked never -- nevada for preparations. g.o.p. is back in las vegas, and nevada could really be important, and, difficult, really, for president. it is at the heart of the foreclosure crisis. >>reporter: no doubt and the unemployment rate state-wide is worse than the national average. the president is trying to down play the expectations for the first debate by saying, i am just okay debater the he did well against hillary clinton in the democratic primaries in 2008. he did well against john mccain. obviously he won the whole thing. four years ago, though
